The Olympian sets the stage on fire.
With an Olympic silver medal to his name, UFC newcomer Madsen made a quick work of the Italian Belluardo as he took only 1:12 secs of the first round to force the referee stop the fight. Once Madsen got hold of Belluardo in the clinch he put him down on his back and began unloading a series of punches and elbows. A failed attempt to choke Belluardo forced Madsen to unload an installment of hammer fists, elbows and punches. A short and sweet victory for the local favourite.
